The Camera

This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera nest boxes and feeder camera kits. This truly outstanding bird box camera uses an intelligent Sony Effio DSP Chip which operates with a Super Light Sensor to cleverly adjust the image quality to suit its environment. Not only this, the light sensor also serves to adjust the x10 infrared night vision LEDs to a graduating on/off, gently supplementing loss or gain of natural light levels with an invisible IR. The result of this outstanding technology is that we can now produce ultra high resolution colour images in full light of day and sharp black and white images at night or low light level conditions. This mini bird box camera incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The nest box camera has a 3.6mm lens producing a 92 degree viewing angle, this has been pre-focused to the optimum position but can manually be adjusted if required.

The Wireless Digital System 

This Gardenature Digital Wireless Transmitter and Receiver kit has been manufactured with the aim of being very simple to install, so it really is fit 'plug and play'.

The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of a professional CCTV quality, it uses digitally encrypted technology which is much more powerful than some cheaper systems that only cover short distances and are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital wireless is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these paired devices will automatically channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. Our digital transmitters are capable of sending a clear AV signal over 120 metres 'line of sight'. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m 'line of sight'.

What is line of sight ? This is the measured distance achievable when there are no obstructions between the TX and RX. A standard house wall can reduce the transmission distance by upto 30 meters.

So what goes where ? Although the audio & video transmission is wireless from the TX transmitter to the RX receiver, there is a need for some cable connections to the camera and for power. 

Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or yellow & white RCA Video/Audio inputs. There is a 240v / 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall.

Outside: The AV transmitter and camera have a 10 meter DC power cable which should be run to the the nearest weatherproof mains power supply. This means that the overall distance from the mains location to the actual swift nest box camera can be upto 30 ft away, extensions available if required.  


Click on the `Buy' button and you will be offered optional accessories such as a Swift Call CDPC / MAC USB connection, Extension CablesHDMI connection and much more...
